The Media Even Spins the NBA --
Two headlines with different emphasis about the same event
From Terry, Nowitzki headline NBA's Three-Point Shootout

From Billups, Bell lead All-Star 3-point shootout field

Neither headline mentions the other two competitors, defending champion Quentin Richardson and former winner Ray Allen. USA Today focuses on the match-up between teammates, while SI means "lead" literally, as Bell and Billups are 1 and 2 in three-point percentage among the players.
